By the time he gets to the third one, his ass is going to be on the ground whether he throws it or eats it.
According to head coach Hugh Freeze, Wallace has picked up where he left off last year… making poor reads and poor decisions and turning the ball over. Freeze is not what you’d call pleased:
“We’re not good enough and deep enough to turn it over and expect to win. We have to find an answer to it, one way or another…
I’m sure hoping at some point we can mature and just because you go through your progression, when you get to that third one it doesn’t mean that you have to throw it to that third one if they’re covered. That’s what happened a couple of times (yesterday).”
Wallace ranked fifth in the SEC in total offense last season accounting for 260 yards per game. He rushed for 390 yards on the season and passed for 2,994. That’s the good part.
The bad part is that he tossed a league-leading 17 interceptions last year.
At the dawn of a new season, it sounds like Freeze is already running out of patience with his starting quarterback.
